Dangote asks Nigerian business leaders to support health sector with 1% of their profit

Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, has called on all businesses within Nigeria and Africa, to support the health sector with at least one percent of their profit.

Speaking at the 2019 Africa Business Health Forum in Addis Ababa, Dangote, who was represented by Halima Dangote, said business is highly interwoven with health.

“To me, business and healthcare are interwoven, and a healthy population can ensure the best labour force to build any economy successfully,” Dangote said.

“Adequate healthcare for all has led to calls for greater private sector involvement in healthcare financing, humanitarian support and philanthropy.

“This is crucial for us in Nigeria and in Africa. As a businessman, and through Aliko Dangote foundation, I am committed to working with governments and key stakeholders for the development of impactful health initiatives in Africa.

“I believe that private sector leaders have a strong role to play. In the past, I have in my country charged business leaders to commit at least one percent of their profit after tax to support the health sector.”
